Orecchiette with rapini

March 22, 2024 Published by Dina

Orecchiette with rapini (broccoli rabe). 

Store bought pasta this time although these are very easy to make. 

The rapini is bitter so to soften the flavour blanch it once or twice before using. 

While the pasta is cooking sauté the rapini in olive oil with salt and pepper. When the pasta is ready transfer to the skillet with the rapini with a little water still clinging and toss to combine. It’s okay if a little of the starchy pasta water transfer with the pasta, it will thicken the “sauce” a bit. 

Serve with plenty of grated pecorino.
